You are doing the right thing for yourself, it's the right time to do it, try to get some rest tonight, and tomorrow will take care of itself. Update us when it's finished, we love happy reports.

Congratulations! It’s ok to be nervous anytime you’re having surgery.

I had my surgery last Monday and am almost feeling back to normal today. Only mild discomfort with my incisions, can sleep on my side now -YAY!, and got to introduce puréed type foods this week.

Look forward to taking this journey with you. Please come join our March Gastric Bypass group on here when you’re up to it!

Wishing you an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery. Just remember to sip, sip, sip and walk, walk, walk as soon as you can.

Now you start healing, smiling and losing some more weight. Sounds like things are under control at your house.

Thank you for the well wishes I went in nervous but then calmed down when i remembered why i was doing the surgery but the surgery went great I'm 11 days post op and I'm feeling almost 100% myself I had the side discomfort couldn't lie on my side at all and it was difficult because I have back pain and I'm a side sleeper but attempting to even sleep on my side was painful but I am happy to say that I can finally sleep on my side the pain has since gotten much better

So you're back to sleeping on your side again and turning the corner between surgery and your future. Wow pretty good for 2 weeks, aren't you proud of you? Sounds like only good things from now on[emoji106][emoji14]

yes I'm proud of myself i doubted in the past I could even make it this far but my bariatric team at hahnemann hospital were great they motivated me and saw my determination and even stopped me from backing out when i was going through personal issues but I'm glad i did go through with the surgery i do have days that I feel tired and weak but it was mainly because i was not intaking enough Protein the vanilla cream pure protein was not good and it was hard to drink so i switched to chocolate its much better i see my surgeon this thursday to see if she thinks I'm ready for full liquids but i have been walking and taking my Vitamins ect following doctors orders i will start the gym within a month post op
